Shiro Restaurant Review

: Located in the beautifully restored Rogers Mansion, a 1930 Greek Revival-style house that's painted white ("shiro" means "white" in Japanese), this ambitious restaurant offers live entertainment. Sit at the handsome sushi bar in what was once the living room and watch the chefs prepare sashimi and maki. Or, score a linen-topped table in the main dining room or one of the tatami rooms on the lower level for a more intimate experience. Wherever you settle in, be sure to indulge in the sesame-crusted ahi, roasted boneless rack of lamb, the kimchi crab cake and soft shell crab. Or, instead opt for a steak with choice of teriyaki, wasabi pepper or Asian béarnaise sauce. Proprietor J.W. Shin draws on his Korean heritage, so expect to find Korean short ribs, served in a neat stack, as well. There's a nice wine list including glass pours with a good selection from around the world at reasonable prices. There are but a few beer selections, and for those who like saké, this place is a gold mine, one with all sorts of options by the glass or bottle, all served at the appropriate temperature.
